Nice little hazy golden color.
The smell is not overly strong to be an IPA but of course with plenty of flowers and hops.
The taste is like any really good IPA. This beer's only drawback is the excessive ABV becuase there are hints of booze in the aftertaste.

Nice orange color with a very thin head that goes away almost immediately. I drank it from a TeKu glass which always accentuates the smell, nice floral and butterscotch. Mouthfeel is very thin And finishes quick. Unlike most Americans IPAs don't tend to be my favorite although I really liked this one as it focused on balance rather than the classic "mo hops, mo better" philosophy that many American brewers shoot for.

Bottle from Harvest Market
Crystal clear deep golden color with a huge fluffy off white head that persists forever. Aromas of bread caramel and earthy hops. English inspired yeasty esters as well as just a touch of butterscotch. The flavor follows the aroma. Sweet bready caramel malt with enough earthy hop to balance. Light fruity notes and a touch of butterscotch round this out. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Decent English inspired beer with a bit more hop bite than its true English counterparts. I prefer an Americanized version honestly.
